Day 13, my last day in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge made a huge impression on me. Up until this time my focus was squarely on capturing the pristine beauty of the environment and wildlife. On this day I had the opportunity to see the impact of man on this unique environment. With in the photo gallery of this days highlights are images designated with the labels “Landscape Comparison” or “Hand of Man Comparison“. Clicking on these images or labels will load a window comparing a scene found deep in the Arctic Refuge and one found in Kaktovik, Alaska. My hope is that this small comparitive sample will exemplify the type of impact man can have in the Arctic with relatively average, but prolonged activity. [Comparisons #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6 & #7] I welcome you to read my journal entry and of course view my collection of images.
